Every year, at the beginning of the year, I sit down with the Father and ask Him what He wants to speak over the coming year for those who are connected with me. This year, I must say, I was a bit surprised by what I heard. Rather than giving me a new word for the new year/decade, He actually led me back to what He spoke over last year and expounded on that. Here’s what I heard Him say:
2020 is going to be the year of MASTERY – of mastering the ONE THING.
This is the year that you are going to actually learn to abide in Me.
This is not a new word. It is a continuation of the word I gave you for 2019.
I am not finished with the work I started in your tribe last year and I will not stop until I finish the good work I began.
What did I speak over 2019? (Click here to review 2019’s word!)
Was it accomplished? Was it completed?
What about the words I spoke to you in 2018? 2017? 2016?
So many of My kids are going from word to word, thing to thing, person to person, teaching to teaching, ministry to ministry, conference to conference, looking for the “next thing.”
But, that is not how I work.
I am patient. I will wait thousands of years, if that is what is takes, to see My word fulfilled.
The generation entering into 2020 is an instant gratification generation.
And the decades leading us here have created an instant gratification church.
But I am shaking the foundations, especially in the West.
I am shaking everything that can be shaken.
I will have My way with My Bride.
So, if you want to know what I am speaking over 2020, start with what I said in 2019 and we can go from there.
Take some time to go back and really let what I spoke sink in.
Don’t be so quick to go from thing to thing to thing to thing.
Abiding is all about a state of being.
It is all about learning to live in the present moment.
It is all about staying awake to My presence and learning to flow and be lead by Me.
Who is building your life? You or Me?
Who is fulfilling your life purpose? You or Me?
Who’s goals are you pursuing? Yours or Mine?
What I really want is ALL OF YOU.
I want to live My life through you every moment of every day.
I want you to remain in Me.
I want you to stay connected to My voice.
I want you to follow My instructions.
I want to accomplish My will through you.
I want to release My kingdom, Heaven, through you.
So what does that mean practically?
It means death to INDEPENDENCE!
Death to living under the influence of anything but Me.
That’s right. I want you under My influence at all times.
When people talk about being under the influence, it normally means they are not in their right mind.
But when I talk about being under the influence, I am talking about staying in your right mind – MY MIND!
I want to influence your thoughts, your feelings, your choices, every aspect of your life.
WHAT I ALWAYS WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS MORE OF YOU!
This isn’t about a new word.
This isn’t about setting new goals.
This is about surrendering to such a degree and allowing My life to flow through you to such a degree, that you can no longer discern, where you end and where I begin.
It is about experiencing perpetual communion and perfect union with Me.
If this takes the next 20 years to learn, then so be it.
Because this is the key to living a successful life.
Abiding in the vine is how fruit is produced.
It’s not about achieving goals in some independent manner.
It’s not about striving.
It’s not about toil.
It’s about Me living My life in and through you.
And when this happens, Heaven will manifest.
And I will use you to accomplish My agenda!
I pray that as you meditate on the Father’s words, the grace and peace of the Lord Jesus Christ will fill you through and through.
I also pray that His words will bring clarity to you regarding your goals and priorities for this coming year.
